OMG...did Boehner speak to Allen West or Newt Gingrich just before this speech. Well, he's up for reelection in 2014 so he has to pretend to be a republican.
Obama caves to marxists and muslim terrorists, Boehner caves to Obama, republicans cave to Boehner, and conservative voters cave to the republican party. Anyone who abandons principle to vote for this party should recognize what it is they are ultimately supporting.
I have $10.00 that says they will cave on sequester, and again barkey gets what he wants... he is already releasing thounds of illegals out of prisons...
"Boehner on sequester: The Senate needs to get “off their ass” and do something".
Why start now? They haven't done a stinking thing when it comes to a budget, since before Obama was elected, the first time.
This sequester is a manufactured, preplanned crisis. Its not the result of any sort of economic issue or event. It was hatched by the obamessiah and his minions. The lack of a budget enhances the opportunities to create and manufacture the crisis. Delivered personally by the teleprompter to the empty chair. And they never let a good crisis go to waste.
Its an opportunity to slash and cut military spending, while at the same time blaming the RINO's for it. What a golden opportunity for the regime!
There you go again Boehner, whining as usual. You agreed to the sequester and to this day you don't realize that Obama is out to destroy this nation.
Get off your a$$ and defend the constitution for a change. You could stop funding the Czars and government waste and McConnell could stop approving Obama's appointments.
Where is he making this statement? Washington DC?
Meanwhile the president is lying his way across the country convincing the American people that it's Congress' fault that there has been no progress and that Congress is at fault for sequestration.
Those "rallies" as Boehner puts it, is what is convincing the American people to continue to support the President's lies.
PR! PR! PR!
I can't stomach these repubnantcan fossils any longer.
You know the Best thing about all this? Everyone's reaction here. Nobody is buying the usual repub-democrat, "Good/cop, Bad /cop" Theatre from Boehner and the boys. All of us are beyond cynical at this stage. It's a Good sign.
Let the cuts happen! It is minuscule! The big fight is coming up...the one we kicked down the road for 3 months....the debt ceiling. Get ready Boehner....toughen up your spine!
Sounds like the sweet sound of music. It's good the see and hear the fact's being laid out for the American people, now it's time for the Congress to kick em to the A$$fault, before things get a he!! of a lot worse in America. The first step has been taken, now keep moving forward to spending cuts or shut em down.
Shout it from every rooftop! Get all the Republicans and conservatives of any party to expose what is going on from every window, door, rooftop, streetcorner, and on every news show on LSM. Do not stop. Make opportunities to expose what they are doing, if you have to, but get the word out!
Boehner needs to calm his own arse down and STFU! Pardon my french, but if these guys are panicking over cutting the RATE OF GROWTH in the federal government, we're beyond screwed. And I fear we're 'beyond'...
They are so used to moving bills that restrict our rights, they do not know how to do something meaningful!
Have you taken a look at the 2 bills the House passed and sent to the Senate? The problem is the Senate with Reid blocking anything that will hurt Obama.
Ray, please check your original post, it doesn't refer to the Senate and this thread is on Boehner (House). Your reply to me also says you were not talking about the Senate, not the House. So I'm confused more than before. There isn't a reason to use the Obama snipe at the beginning either. My response to you was polite and that I agreed with you, I only ask the same in return.
Look, I was not talking about the Senate, not the house, the senate takes up all their time passing bills that restrict our rights, they have lost the ability, UNDER REID, on how to do meaningful legislation like a budget. I hope that helps, HOWEVER, the House could man up and refuse to do the demonrats bidding and refuse to fund the continuing resolution. They could, instead, only fund essential services and let the money run out when the senate refuses to accept that. Then adjourn the house until the Senate decides to come to the table and do their job and pass a budget. Go back to their districts and hold town hall meetings and explain to the locals what is going on, but they are wimps, and are not up to the task of doing what is right, forget about the next election and make meaningful change!
I get it and agree, but the House did pass their bills as they are required to do. Boehner is finally calling Reid and Obama out on sequester and for that he deserves some credit.
They don't want to fix it..why, because then the 100 billion of missing taxpayer dollars will be found..and the thieves in chief will be caught..no one would have to suffer if they took the time to find all the waste ..That is their job..making sure We The People are being represented and our money is going to the things that matter most..not passed out under the table to God knows Who..
Why didn't he talk like this during the previous debt ceiling and fiscal cliff phony debates? Doesn't matter, he'll cave when the pressure is on.
Why would we want the sequester to be stopped or replaced? This is entertaining and instructional about politics in DC seeing how politicians react to spending more money than last year but not as much money as they wanted to do.
If we can' t cut rate of growth spending by 1 or 2% we will never get spending under control.
Too little too late, Mr Boehner.
I appreciate that it takes time to grow a spine, so perhaps you'd step back and give your job as speaker to someone who already has a spine, like Rep Gohmert, or Rep Gowdy.
Btw - how does it feel to have been used by the POS as prop and doormat at the same time?
I disagree a bit. Yes it is late but not too late. Obama's fake Twitter accounts have been exposed, his "nonprofit" tentacles highlighted, his "gun control" narrative is failing. Finally, and I do mean finally, Boehner has gotten out from beneath the corner table and stood up to the bully-in-chief. I hope the RINOs are meeting with Ben Sharipo, author of "Bullies, How the Left's Culture of Fear and Intimidation Silences America" because he calls it like he sees it and has great advice for getting in the bullies' faces.
I agree that Louie Gohmert should really get out there. Gowdy is too busy crafting an amnesty plan for illegals and is ignoring Fast and Furious and Benghazi.
Alright Boehner... now have every Republican repeat some of what you said... and do so on Jay Leno and other non-fox news programs we may go somewhere.
I just hope Boehner sticks to his guns and does not cave as history shows, or we will really be doomed yet again!
This liar in chief is nothing a Pres. is, and hasd yet to work a single day in office actuaslly doing his job! WHY DIDN'T ANYONE SEE THIS PRIOR TO THIS LAST ELECTION???
Shut your mouth Boehner. You have earned the right to remain silent.
This administration and its enablers of both parties must be certifiably insane.
Here's a quote that proves it:
"Fathom the hypocrisy of a country that requires every citizen to prove they are insured...but not every person to prove they are a citizen."
"And now any of those who refuse, or are unable to prove they are citizens will receive free insurance, paid for by those who are forced to buy insurance because they are citizens."
Was he the one who said yesterday that Obama has "balls like marshmallows"?
Which demographic is he trying to reach out to with this new verbage?
Perhaps he hired a pop culture specialist!
Personally, I prefer the Rand Paul "steady Eddie" explanation of
the lies that Obama is telling in regards to sequestration. Now that
was an outstanding video. However, I am older; therefore, I admit that
I do not understand fully the younger generation's humor; saw that movie
"Identity Theft" with my daughter and while I saw lots of humor, that movie
was what I would call bawdy (giving away my age again!). The whole theatre
was laughing hysterically throughout most of the movie.
Anyways, you have to give Boehner credit for trying to some how, some way
get his message across to the masses.
While it's enjoyable to see Boehner with a little fire in his belly, it'd be even better to demand treason charges.
As for this mess, dear leader doesn't care, neither does half the government. Good luck trying to get it done, and just know the republicans will be blamed for whatever follows.
